Early bird tickets now on sale



15th January 2022 at 18:11

Now the call for speakers is kicked off (and we already have a great first batch of submissions) it's time to open early-bird ticket sales!

This is a chance to get 25% off the full price of a three day conference ticket (£480 instead of £600, including VAT).

For now we're only selling tickets to the physical, in-person, event. When full price ticket sales open we'll also offer online-only tickets, workshops, speakers dinner and "complete conference package" tickets.

Early bird pricing will run until the end of February - or whenever the schedule is published.

For some peace of mind in these uncertain times, we've also extended our cancellation policy to waive any cancellation fee if made for COVID-related reasons (travel restrictions or a positive test).




The 2022 Call for Speakers is now open



9th January 2022 at 21:10

We start 2022 with mixed feelings, but reasons to be optimistic about a return to some sort of normal during this year. We could still be thrown (yet) a(nother) curve ball, but the current plan is still to hold a physical, in-person, event this year.

Even assuming that is possible, we still expect there to be some disruption. Some may prefer not to, or not be able to travel. For still others the travel has always been an issue, and the last couple of years of virtual events has been a boon!

C++ on Sea will be (unless that is forced to change) an "in-person first" event. The main event will be held on-site, with all speakers expected to be on-site. We will also run a concurrent virtual event with replays of the live talks, and hopefully a few live streams - and, of course, a Discord server to tie it all together. We may also be able to accommodate a small number of remote speakers streaming in. However, the internet infrastructure at our venue is not one of its strong points and is not something we can rely on for more than this.

So we have attempted to cover all of these considerations with our shiny new Call for Speakers, which is now open, and runs to the end of 6th February 2022 (GMT).

So please head to our Call for Speakers page for more details and to submit your proposal.




C++ on Sea 2022



20th December 2021 at 16:32

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

As I write this, heading into Christmas week at the end of 2021, the pandemic that appeared to have been receding is back and bigger than ever! Nonetheless, the situation is different to before. Serious as it is now, between vaccines, boosters and antivirals, we still see a path out towards the end of winter. It's difficult to make predictions, especially about the future, but there is reason for some confidence in the next year.

With that in mind, it still feels odd to be announcing, in the current climate, that we intend to run an in-person conference next summer!

Yes, C++ on Sea is back by the sea! Or at least that is the current plan. We have booked the Leas Cliff Hall, once again, for July 4th-7th 2022. We're now busy, behind the scenes, working out all the details. We'll have updates first thing in the new year when we'll also open the call for speakers.

We're also thrilled to be able to announce a full line-up of awesome keynote speakers, already: Hana Dusíková, Kevlin Henney and Jason Turner.

All have spoken at C++ on Sea, before, although Hana is yet to join us in person (the first year her flights were cancelled and she had to give her talk remotely. The second year, she was due to give a keynote, but everything was cancelled! So we're looking forward to ending her travel jinx this time).

So, mark your calendars and watch this space for updates, soon.
